MPs have published a report examining proposed changes to the structure of NHS commissioning organisations.

It describes how the NHS Long-Term Plan intends for integrated care systems to cover the whole of England by 2021, leading to a reduction in the number of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).

The report finds that many CCGs are currently underperforming, and concludes that they will need to improve as they take on responsibility for commissioning services across larger populations. The committee of MPs add that getting the commissioning structures right will be an important part of delivering the NHS Long-Term Plan.
